DD 214 - Discharge Papers
Obtaining a DD 214 is a vital step in the VA home loan process.
The official title of this document is Defense Department Form 214. It is commonly referred to as "Discharge Papers," DD214, DD Form 214 or DD 214 Form, and it may also say “Report of Separation”. This document helps show eligibility for veteran's benefits, and is one of a veteran's most valuable military documents.
How can I obtain a DD 214?
Veterans and their next-of-kin can obtain copies of their DD 214 from the National Personnel Records Center via a Form SF-180 (Request Pertaining to Military Records). Many borrowers save time and effort by speaking with our VA Loan Specialists before beginning the process of gathering documents.
